June 22 (UPI) -- Lin-Manuel Miranda is Alexander Hamilton once again in the first trailer for Disney+'s upcoming filmed version of Broadway blockbuster Hamilton.

Miranda is joined by the original Hamilton cast including Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette, Leslie Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr, Renee Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler and more.

"Hamilton is the story of America then, told by America now. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, Hamilton has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre -a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics and education," reads the synopsis.
